Rose also compares Mainwaring with Winston Churchill.

Just watch the series instead
20 August 2016 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Being a fan of the original television series I'd thought it would be a good idea watching the movie they made out of it. I have to admit the characters were very resembling the original characters. But for someone who never saw the series before, this movie might be a bit boring because you just can't relive the original characters in your imagination. But even to me, I am not sure they had to make a movie out of it. The series were way funnier. I think the early format of short episodes work way better then a long movie. All in all the movie is watchable, but certainly not as funny as I expected to be. Maybe in the future a movie based on the series Allo Allo? Making fun of the Germans is always funny.
